The Vow, A Dietary Tale –

Lead me not into temptation
Calories and indigestion

Don’t know how
To follow my vow

And leave my kitchen tribulations.


You’ll never grow if you never change.  Not all growths i gladly welcome.

And if change is all i want,  i don’t want to grow those belly bulge and gain extra weight.

Yes, there is something constant with me every year and it happens every end of december.

My new year’s resolution has never change.  Lose weight,  start to diet and achieve that “to die for” gorgeous body.

And just like all those beautifui things that are not meant to stay,  i’ll just say goodbye to 2016 and start the year with a big bang of chocolate roll and a cup of ice cream, yes not a scoop but a full cup welcoming the new year with a sweet taste and a memorable fireworks of hope and joys to be filled.

So how do you look at the things you love and tell yourself it’s time to walk away?   Just remember this:

Making excuses is a talent,
Giving in to temptation is an art
and resisting it must be one hell of a skill.

And if you’re not that skillful,  no worries,  you’re still a talented artist.   πŸ™‚


Happy New Year and may our 2017 be filled with love and irresistible temptations we joyfully indulge in.


By the way i would like to end this year by thanking Bea for nominating me for Versatile Blogger Award.

  1. Yeah, I’m not great at resisting food temptations. I try to make good choices and eat things that will fill me up to offset my bad choices. I’ve set a size I won’t go over and stick to it. Living a life of not allowing some enjoyment is not life.

  2. There is something about food that nothing matches
    At least for me
    The comfort of a bag of that good popcorn
    Or that those hit cookies I can never refuse
    A pt of chocolate ice cream when the clock strikes 12
    Oh god let me stop before I become the wall
    I just hit all for the silent comfort of food
